What was your first bike?  

I got my first big wheel honda and never looked back. My first Street bike was a ridged 74 Honda CB 750 Chopper with a car tire on the back wheel and a girder front end and ape hangers! It took a corn field to turn around in!

What is your background/interest in motorcycle customization? Family hobby, self­taught, trained pro, etc?

My Dad is a Motorcycle mechanic by trade and I basically grew up in the back of a shop.  He and I raced Motocross for 10 years as a kid and then I started riding street bikes. I got the bug from him and really never quit.  He and I have built and flipped bikes and cars my whole life. And now working with Triumph Motorcycles over the past years riding their bikes and customizing them it really is a dream come true.  

What is your inspiration when wrenching on or designing your bike?  

I want to go for a feeling not really comfort but of lean toughness weather its a bobber or a cafe or a cruiser I love stripped down and lean and mean.  

What things outside of motorcycling inspire you?

I am very blessed to get to play music for a living so that travel lifestyle inspires me.  And because of that I get to ride all over the world weather its Australia, or Britain, or the good old U.S.A. I wanna make tracks when I’m there.  Also I have kids so they always inspire me and I want to pass on my love of bikes to them.

What are your goals in the coming year?

This year I have 3 new records coming out that I will be touring behind as well I have a brand new T120 black i want to customize and ride to Vancouver this summer!  Maybe even down to Nashville. Just keep riding and loving life!
